How staking can make your bear market bullish?

The terms “bear” and “bull” have been used for centuries; however, today we aren’t talking about trading stock securities or commodities, we’re talking about crypto.

Whether you’re a venture capitalist, seasoned investor, or a rookie trader, we can all agree that the crypto market is oftentimes more volatile than the stock market. This kind of market volatility has led investors astray, portfolios to plummet, and companies’ tokens to plateau. However, there is a way to make your red days light up green again: with a smart staking strategy, investors and projects can benefit concurrently.

Here are the top 5 reasons to utilize staking:

Through passive income, investors can potentially earn as much as 20% a year (think of a high-yield savings account). For example, if a company is offering 10% APY on your holdings of $1,000, at the end of the year you will matriculate $100. Additionally, investors can rest easy knowing that no additional equipment is required to participate in staking.

Many crypto companies incentivize investors with rewards, such as NFTs, and who doesn’t love free stuff? These can include art pieces or — in our case — NFTs with diverse utilities. Investors can also stake NFTs to earn varying rewards and income by locking their assets on DeFi platforms. One of the best aspects of staking NFTs is that it allows investors to earn rewards without having to find a buyer, thus alleviating issues with the NFTs liquidity.

Crypto projects can utilize staking to help stabilize the value of their token via a lock-up period, especially in bearish times. Investors who participate in staking have their tokens removed from the circulating supply, thus leading to a decrease in the tokens available for trading. This works to promote a healthier token economy and allows companies to stimulate community engagement and foster long-term investor relationships.

Staking crypto actually works to improve the security of the blockchain. Investors who participate in staking make the blockchain more resistant to attacks and hackers. Staking also improves the efficiency of transitions that are made on the Blockchain. Additionally, staking via the Proof-of-Stake model saves companies money and increases engagement with the brand by having investors themselves validate transactions. The Proof-of-Stake model is also much more eco-friendly than its infamous counterpart, Proof-of-Work, thus alleviating the need for extremely energy insufficient miners to validate transactions.

One size does not fit all when it comes to staking. Crypto companies and investors have many staking platform options to choose from, each offering its own unique benefits. Some of the most popular platforms for staking are Coinbase, Binance, and Kraken.

The aforementioned list should make it clear that even in trying times there’s always a way to pivot and turn things around. Moreover, projects can better protect themselves against relentless price action by implementing staking.
